    Link Multiple Revit files in one shot?

    is there a way to link lots of .rvt files into another in batch mode or is one at a time the only way?

    Just manual I think... It should be doable with the API but don't think anyone did it until now...

      How many links are you thinking?
      Hundreds?

          So, you were anticipating that the answer to your question a couple of hours ago was... No...
          The positive side is that now you have practiced a lot of linking in Revit! :laugh:

              Hotel rooms maybe? No wait, that'd be 156 locations for one model... or maybe something completely different...

                curtain wall frames that I make in separate .rvt files then link them into my main model. It makes dealing with scheduled parts checking more manageable. Then once I have all of the individual frame parts schedules perfect I link them all into one file where I get one great big set of schedules with all of the parts and pieces and don't have to deal with the 13 or 14 schedules in each of the 156 frame files any more. These schedules gets exported to text files and sucked into Access for report generation. Easy as pie

                  yeah, I anticipated the worst. You know me Alf, time is money! BTW, thanks for the suggestion to put all of the frame files into one big file. This solves the problem of multiple quantities too as I just link frame file A and if there are four of them I make three more copies and the parts schedules reflect the total quantity of material. I can still get the per frame list of materials from the individual files. So far, so good!
